Abstract

Rather regularly used nowadays, the idiom work-life balance (WLB) proves to be an important phenomenon surpassing the simple prioritization between work and personal life. Aware of the great mental, biological, psychological, social and even economic impact that it has on each person, quite a few companies began developing WLB initiatives. However, it is unlikely to register many employees considering them, given the fact that those taking advantage of the WLB programs are generally perceived as not committed to the organization and therefore not deserving promotion. Hence, we plead for providing from an early stage (even the very first cycles of schooling), some educational programs focused on the key elements that drive a healthy balance between work and private life. This way, awareness of work-life balance would be raised and future employees would know how to use it in both their and their company's advantage.
